The GOP has jumped through all the hoops demanded of Democrats and Judge Brett Kavanaugh has survived all the demands for additional hearings and a seventh FBI investigation. The road appears cleared for a confirmation vote on Saturday. The Democrats have tried their best to derail this nomination and destroy the lives of Judge Kavanaugh and his family in the process.
Senator Toomey is one of the majority of GOP Senators who are joining Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell in calling for no hearings and no floor vote on a Supreme Court Justice nominee to replace Justice Antonin Scalia. With the presidential election cycle in full swing, they are saying the next President should be the one to choose Scalia’s replacement.
While we applauded Senator Pat Toomey’s statements saying the next President should nominate the US Supreme Court Justice to replace recently deceased Justice Antonin Scalia, we cannot support his insistence that two more of Obama’s nomineess be advanced for Pennsylvania’s Western and Eastern Districts!
Senator Toomey has joined Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley in saying the American voter should have a say in the next Supreme Court Justice by allowing a new President to nominate a replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia.
AFA of PA encourages Christians, through education, to become involved in pro-family issues in their community, state and the nation. This is some of what has been going on in the Commonwealth and the nation.
“Cruz noted that the decision likely paves the way for gay marriage in 11 states: Virginia, Indiana, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Utah, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia, Kansas, Colorado, and Wyoming. And it sets the stage for gay marriage nationwide.” This is outrageous! Seventy-six percent of voters in Oklahoma said, “We want marriage to only be between one man and one woman.” Yet, the judicial oligarchy we now live under said, “TOUGH!” And still silence from the “conservatives” in Congress! Although House Speaker John Boehner is out campaigning for openly homosexual Republican House candidates who support same-sex “marriage”!
This evening both US Senators from Pennsylvania voted ‘Yea” on advancing S 815 the so-called Employment Non-Discrimination Act or ENDA which is designed to force businesses, including Christian-owned businesses, hospitals and universities, to hire homosexuals and transgenders. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide traditional values group, is extremely disappointed that both PA Senators voted to discriminate against those with deeply held religious beliefs that homosexuality is wrong.
Did you know that yesterday 76 PA House members sent Senator Toomey a letter urging him to stand with his constituency in support of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution? Their pleas apparently fell on deaf ears!
Senator Pat Toomey is the only Pennsylvanian in the United States Senate who supports traditional one man one woman marriage. Two Republicans have endorsed so-called same-sex “marriage” in recent days — Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) and Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL). Kirk became the fiftieth US Senator to announce support for so-called same-sex “marriage” — 48 Democrats and 2 Republicans.
One week ago today the US Senate voted to approve the National Defense Authorization bill and both of Pennsylvania’s US Senators voted “Yea.” The bill has come under close scrutiny in the days since it passed and it has been exposed that on page 174 of the bill it will repeal the military ban on sodomy and bestiality. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA) faxed and emailed both Senator Robert Casey and Senator Pat Toomey asking, ” Did you know that on page 174 of that bill there is a provision that will repeal Article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice which bans bestiality and sodomy in the military?”
